Recent Stormwater Activities

The City of Wenatchee is a partner in the Wenatchee Valley Stormwater Technical Advisory Committee(WVSTAC) with Chelan County, Douglas County and the City of East Wenatchee. The WVSTAC has been working together to develop a regional stormwater management program in compliance with the Eastern WA Phase II Municipal Stormwater Permits issued by Department of Ecology. Last summer, the City and three other local jurisdictions passed Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination regulations to reduce the discharge of pollutants to the storm drains. A public education campaign started in January to provide information to businesses and residents on best management practices or ways to prevent pollution. The campaign includes public meetings, community events such as the KPQ Home Show and Earth Day, and outreach materials. The WVSTAC is also working on developing programs to address stormwater pollution from construction sites and stormwater facilities.
